Construction in India - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023
India's construction industry regained growth momentum in 2018, with output expanding by 8.8% in real terms - up from 1.9% in 2017. This was driven by positive developments in economic conditions, improvement in investor confidence and investments in transport infrastructure, energy and housing projects. In the 2018-2019 budget, the government increased its expenditure towards infrastructure development by 20.9%, going from INR4.9 trillion (US$75.9 billion) in the Financial Year (FY) 2017-2018 to INR6.0 trillion (US$89.2 billion) in FY2018-2019.
The industry is expected to continue to expand over the forecast period (2019-2023), driven by the government’s efforts to develop the country’s infrastructure and improve housing sector. The government's continued investment in transport infrastructure, energy and residential projects under flagship programs such as Bharatmala scheme, Housing for All 2022, the UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik) scheme and the Aayushman Bharat program is expected to drive the growth of the industry over the forecast period. In January 2019, the government outlined the investments under the second phase of Bharatmala scheme, which will drive the road infrastructure developments in the country. Moreover, population growth and urbanization will also drive the need for better infrastructure facilities in the country.
The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to rise at a CAGR of 6.44% over the forecast period, compared to 4.31% during the review period (2014-2018).

- GlobalData expects the energy and utilities construction market to record a forecast-period CAGR of 10.83% in nominal terms, driven by the government’s aim to increase the share of renewable energy in terms of total energy consumption and encouraging investment in renewable energy infrastructure. The government aims to increase the share of renewable energy in total installed power capacity from 10.6% in 2018 to 40.0% by 2030. Accordingly, it aims to generate 175GW of electricity through renewable sources by 2022.
- Forecast-period growth in the institutional construction market will be supported by public and private sector investment in educational and healthcare building construction projects.

Positive developments in economic conditions, improvement in investor confidence and investments in transport infrastructure, energy and housing projects have helped the Indian construction industry regain growth momentum in 2018, with output value increasing from US$464.9bn in 2017 to US$505.7bn, says GlobalData.
The report: ‘Construction in India - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023’ reveals that the India's construction industry, which registered an output growth of 8.8%, up from 1.9% in 2017, is further expected to grow at a compounded annual average rate of 6.44% to US$690.9bn in 2023.
Dhananjay Sharma, Construction Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “India’s construction industry is expected to continue to expand over the forecast period (2019–2023), driven by the government’s efforts to develop the country’s infrastructure and improve housing sector.”
The government’s ‘Housing for All’ initiative – ‘Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana’ (PMAY) - aims to build 20 million affordable houses for the urban poor by 2022. This will provide a significant boost to residential construction - the markets largest category - which will account for a third of the industry’s total value by 2023.
In the 2018–2019 budget, the government increased its expenditure towards infrastructure development by 20.9% from INR4.9 trillion (US$75.9bn) in the Financial Year (FY) 2017–2018 to INR6.0 trillion (US$89.2bn).
Residential construction is expected to remain the largest market over the forecast period, accounting for 30.1% of the industry’s total value in 2023. The country’s rising population, urbanization and positive developments in regional economic conditions are also expected to create greater demand for residential construction over the forecast period.
Sharma concludes: “GlobalData’s latest estimate of India’s total construction project pipeline including all mega projects with a value above US$25m, stands at INR82.5 trillion (US$1.2 trillion). The pipeline, which includes all projects from pre-planning to execution, is skewed towards early-stage projects, with 60.7% of the pipeline value being in projects in the pre-planning and planning stages as of February 2019.”
